How are reactions related to chemical bonds? The type of bond has a great effect on the rate of reaction or speed of reaction. Here we are going to discuss why and how it happens, First of all in case of ionic compounds:- Lets take example of Sodium hydroxide and Hydrochloric acid NaOH (aq) +Continue reading “WHY THE IONIC REACTIONS ARE FASTER?”

Why CH3 group is Ortho and para directing in nature in Toulene ?
IN CASE OF TOLUENE the methyl group attached to the ring, increases the electron density at ortho and para positions by resonance without changing anything at the meta position. Thus the attacking reagent directly attacks at the electron rich site , thus the methyl group is ortho directing. you can easily understand the movement ofContinue reading “Why CH3 group is Ortho and para directing in nature in Toulene ?”
Which is more acidic ortho methyl phenol or phenol?
the phenol is more acidic as compared to ortho methyl phenol because the methyl group is electron releasing group which will increase the electron density in the ring as well as on the carbon atom attached to -OH (hydroxyl group) thus -OH group will not release the H+ ion. but in case of phenol thereContinue reading “Which is more acidic ortho methyl phenol or phenol?”
